Broken 5th metatarsal

I am a 62 yr. old type 1 diabetic for 48 yrs with extreme neuropothy. I broke my 5th metatarsal just 2 days ago and the Dr. just wrapped my foot and put me in walking boot and said to see him in a week. This seems like a tame procedure for this injury. What is the usual procedure for this injury in long term diabetics with neuropothy?
